I know I'm being unreasonable...

But... grrrrrr...

So, four days in (early this morning), I decided to jump on the scale. The morning after my first DD, I was down 2 lbs. Yay. As of this morning, after my THIRD down day, I am back up 1.1 pounds. Grrrrrrr... what gives? I have been sticking to 550 calories, every other day (2000 on the UD's) -- for an average of 1225 a day. How can I possibly be gaining weight on that?!

I have read that the scale bounces a lot with JUDDD (and 1.1 pounds isn't anything to flip my lid over, I know...) -- but I just SO want this to work.

You're going to get wild weight fluctuations on this diet--and you have to grind your teeth through them. Wednesday I hit my JUDDD low of 271 and was jumping up and down. The next day, it was back up to 274. Today, after a perfect DD, it's 273. But this isn't my first rodeo, so I know the overall trend is going to be down.

It's really hard on the psyche. Especially in those early weeks when you're not sure if JUDDD is going to work at all and you think you might just be that one person who is different from everybody else and can't lose doing this. (And there are such people.)

It helped me to set a timeline--I was going to do JUDDD until X date and not vary from that course no matter what.

Thank you, Steph -- that is what I was hoping to hear -- that this 1.1 pound gain (ridiculous, I know) does NOT guarantee that I am one of the special cases for whom JUDDD just isn't going to work. I've already got it in my mind that I'm going to give it a month no matter what. Stupid scale -- it has been my undoing before -- not this time!

Steph..And as for the bouncy scale..One thing you must do for your self is to be prepared for that to happen..Cuz it will! I just went camping last weekend, and yes on a DD i ate 6 cups of pocorn. but i dint eat the farm!! Plus the next day,, i indulged in two deserts.. something i dont eat.. (small Peices) any way.. i came home and hopped on the scale up 3.5 pounds. and that was after a no food DD.I knew this was goin to happen.. it did bug me.. i wont lye.. BUT this is where the trust in JUDDD comes... Stay with the rotations.. and i am down all of those plus a lil for 4.2 gone.. less than a week later.. I have noticed this.... When my body is losing the FAT...it hangs tight to the water for what ever the reason.. and when its good and ready..WOOSH goes the water that used to be fat.. So hang tight.. keep up the great work.. and rembember,, as hard as it is to think this.. "its not a race!" This is a journey that will take alot of ups and downs to get where we need to go.. Enjoy what ever day today is,, UP OR DD.. Today is just one more day closer to our goals~

Also, realize that these are very small fluctuations. After your first down day, you probably did not really lose 2 lbs of fat. That would require a calorie deficit of 7,000. And even if we take into account that all calories may not be equal, that's still a lot of wiggle room.

By the same token, I doubt you ate 3,500 extra calories yesterday to justify a one pound bounce. Fluid is at play here--it is always at play. Give yourself a deadline by which you're allowed to panic, and then work the rotations in peace until then

50 lbs!!! Wow! What an inspiration, SterlingGirl! In fact, our starting stats are very close (well, I was 4 lbs more... lol) -- but that really gives me hope. Where you are now is where I was before having my kids -- and two pregnancies definitely took their toll.

So, yes, my rational mind knows that there will certainly be fluctuations. My childish, instant gratification mind, though, just wants losses all the time and to take its toys and go home if it doesn't get that. lol I'm hangin in, though.

Steph, you're so right -- there's no way this could be anything but water. Although, yesterday was the first down-day where I felt REALLY hungry for much of the day. I guess I was taking that to mean I'd see a big loss this morning. I know, a little bit of a logical jump, there -- but there you go. lol

Hi Deen, I'm dealing with the same issue (up 3 lbs today), which is pizzing me off, but at the same time I know for sure that it is not fat. It's water from the sodium and carbs I inhaled yesterday, and the fact that I have not had a good (ahem) bathroom event in a couple of days, and stuff is building up temporarily.

There is no way that I ate enough in the last two days to gain three lbs. And the reason I weigh every day is to become immune to the fluctuations. In fact, after I get this third week behind me, I"m probably going to start weekly averaging, where you weigh daily and compare the week's averaged weight to the average of the previous week. That's where you get the best snapshot of what is actually happening.

Actually sweetpea, after JUDDDing since march.. I have come to know that for me at least.. hungry meant fat loss happening and it was the bodys way of trying sabatoge the process.. So hang tight.. eat a lil somthing when the hungar is really bad.. no need to suffer~ I have done.. no food DD many days, and 120 cal down days is my norm,, just coffee and tons of water. AND i have done up to 500 cal DD.. And from what i have seen at least for me... they all pan out the same!!! So dont be afraid to eat a lil somthing if you must on that hungry down day dear~

I've been weighing every day....because I'm a glutton for punishment. But actually, I like seeing the fluctuations because it just makes me more determined to stay the course. This is my 5th day and I'm pretty happy with the results so far--hit ONEderland....but I'm not going to bank on staying there. At least not until my fluctuations go a bit more downward than up.

Stick to it....and don't let the numbers rain on your parade!

Oh, and congrats Kimberly on waving bye-bye to 50! Awesome!

Good luck and stay with it! It's sometimes a frustrating process (I know I have been ready to pulverize my scale on many occasions) but it eventually works lower. I was up 5 pounds for absolutely no reason that I could figure out last week and am now back down to my previous low. Just kept with rotations, kept to my exercise schedule and it eventually resolved itself. NOW just hoping to dip a bit further before the end of the month.

GO Kimberly!! 50 pounds is amazing!

Yeah, I think weighing at 2 days, then again at 4 days was a mistake for me. I tend to be scale-obsessive and I can't look at it objectively, either. I really let it get me down.

I've been weighing every day. I think you either need to weigh every day - so you can see the fluctuations and trends - or just choose to do it once a week or once a month. If you do it once a week I might schedule it so that you pick your weigh day after a DD - say Saturday one week and Sunday the next.

I'm planning on giving this a solid go. The math of the calories totally works out for me even if the rest of it doesn't. And I have a lot of trouble sticking to a reduced calorie diet where I restrict everyday, but this seems really good for me.

This is how I look at the "bounce":
I wake up... it's raining. Yuck, I don't like the rain, my arthritis hurts, my hair gets frizzy, but eventually the sun will come out and then I'll enjoy it and be mindful of the sunny warmth, no aches and straight hair. While it was raining I still got up, went to work or did what needed to be done and didn't let the rain negatively effect my day. It may rain all day and I'll probably have some great moments despite this.

So, I get on the scale and I bounced up. Well, just like the rain it's bound to happen. I don't let it effect my day, my mood, my sense of worth. When I drop weight I really enjoy it but I didn't miss out on all the other moments in my life because I was stuck in a negative space about the higher number that I saw the day before.

Life is too short to worry about the bounce- especially if you are choosing JUDDD as your WOE.

I have become desensitized to the bounce, but if it takes too much of a toll, you can visit the scale less frequently.

That's my issue with not weighing every day. Without seeing the daily trends, I can't tell where my highs and lows are. On any given day, I may be at a false high (water weight), or a new low. Those numbers will bounce around all over the place, but as you watch them, you'll see your *range* of low to high move down the scale.

Three weeks ago, my high bounce was 238. Now it's 236. I'll probably see a brand new low in a few days. But if I only weigh every few days, and the first day was on a new low, and the second weigh-in was a bounce day, then I think I'm gaining.

Mind games...

I weighed every day for a while, just to satisfy my curiosity. Then it sort of got silly and I worried.

So I weigh on Tuesday mornings now, but only really log it once a month.

There are far too many weird bounces to worry over. As long as the monthly trend is about 4lbs down I don't care any more!

I say that now, I may change my mind in a week, end of month 2!

Thanks for the tip about feeling hungry and its the fat melting off. I will remember that next time I want to eat my entire fridge!! lol thankfully I haven't been ravagenously hungry lately. Must be the Juddd magic.

Deen

I had an up day yesterday. kept very close to my calories and I gained 2 lbs!!! So pissed off this am, started to think about what I ate and analyzing everything. I had had a piece of bread and some pasta, but overall not too many carbs, probably under 100 for the day. Anyways, so glad I stoppped by to read this thread. It reminded me to expect the bouce. It's just going to happen....I plan to weigh myself tomorrow after my DD and maybe a few more times to reassure myself I am trending downwards but then I plan to weight weekly so I dont drive myself nuts.

Well, this morning was my one week anniversary -- I have lost a grand total of two pounds. Not earth-shattering, but not bad, either. If I can have that every week (or even one will do!) I'll be a very happy camper. Thanks for the wise words, everyone!

Deen, to the world of JUDDD BUDDDs, and on your 2 pound weight loss. Just think...2 pounds a week for a year would be 104 pounds, and that's just restricting half the time! Such a wonderful WOE.

Yup -- that's exactly what I'm thinking -- not a HUGE loss (but I have been on a downward trend recently -- 18 lbs down from my weight six months ago) -- so I wasn't expecting to be down 10 lbs or anything (although I'd have taken it! lol). So, yeah, I feel good about this. Thanks.

I learned a lot from the book.
The alternate day diet by Dr. Johnson.
He wrote it out better than I could.

Yes, I think the book is the way to go, although there have been some great posts on here about it, and lots of new positive research since the book came out. I am not scientifically minded so am not the one to help.
